A scientist moves into Dr. Frankenstein's castle to set up his experimental growth ray. When he trains it upon an amoeba, the frightened villagers burst in, and seeing the equipment, think he is going to bring ruin down upon them and hustle him off to the town jail. With no one to shut off the growth machine, the amoeba grows to huge size and smashes out of the castle to menace the village. The scientist escapes his jail cell and uses his labcoat soaked with sugar to lure Sporr into a quicksand pit.; 150 Martian flying saucers land on Earth, but do nothing after landing. Since no pilots emerge the natives transport the craft to military bases where their hulls are experimented upon, but cannot be penetrated. At a prearranged signal, all the saucers open a port. The curious scientists and military men enter, but discover no pilot or instrumentation. After they leave, the saucers return to Mars secure in the knowledge that was absorbed from their minds that Earth is no threat to them. The saucers themselves are the Martians.; A hypnotist uses his power to rob a movie theatre, but accidentally hypnotizes himself and forgets the whole plan.; A prisoner escapes and uses a time machine to travel into the past, but he accidentally kills his own ancester, erasing himself.
